The Final Chapter of Multiple Warheads this February

Acclaimed cartoonist Brandon Graham will release Multiple Warheads: Ghost Throne, a one-shot to complete the series, this February from Image Comics.

Multiple Warheads: Ghost Throne is the culmination of the Multiple Warheads chapters serialized in ISLAND, in which our heroes finally make good on their wizard heist plans.

Multiple Warheads: Ghost Throne (Diamond code: DEC170617) hits comic book stores Wednesday, February 21st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, January 29th.

The Complete Multiple Warheads Launches in January

In a science-fi and fantasy-infused version of Russia, The Complete Multiple Warheads, Vol. 1, created by Brandon Graham, follows ex-organ smuggler Sexica and her werewolf boyfriend Nikoli as they travel across radioactive wastelands with the hardcore organ hound Blue Nura hot on their heels. As much about the characters and the slice-of-life stories as it is about the journey, Multiple Warheads has something for every type of reader.

An epic journey set in a fantasy Russia where monsters and magic are as commonplace as snow and stroganov, Graham’s The Complete Multiple Warheads collects issues 1-4 of the series, along with Multiple Warheads: Downfall (One-Shot).

The RISE of Jason Wynn!

Jason Wynn, Al Simmons’ old mentor and superior, and one of the Spawn universe’s greatest villains, returns to shed light on the dark realities of Jim’s past. But Wynn, ever the puppet master, has motivations beyond simply filling in the blurred gaps in Jim’s memory.  What happens when Wynn finds himself to be nothing more than another pawn in the endless war between Heaven and Hell? Witness the early days of Wynn’s rise to power, and the unbridled ambition that made him one of the most powerful men on the planet as “DE-PROGRAMMED” continues with this special two-part chapter entitled, “The Life and Death of Jason Wynn!”

New Brandon Graham Series in October

Brandon Graham has been called “one of the great talents to emerge in the last ten years” by Warren Ellis. His stark, imaginative reboot of Rob Liefeld’s Prophet has garnered praise from all corners of the comic book world. Prophet is drawn by a rotating cast of artists, but Graham got his start in comics drawing his own comic, the massive, pun-heavy King City. Graham has returned to both the writing desk and the drawing table with Multiple Warheads, a miniseries to be published by Image Comics in October.

Just as rife with wordplay and wild with futuristic details (Vat-grown radiation-sniffing squids! Self-heating root vegetables! Musical caffeine cigarettes! Organic, mobile palaces!) as the reader-beloved King CityMultiple Warheads is a project where Graham has let his mind wander the open road. At the same time, he keeps the lives of his characters, grounded with familiar sentiments and actions.

The first issue of Multiple Warheads, a four-issue, full-color mini-series, is 48 pages long. It will be available for pre-order in the August issue of Previews.
